first class ( a four-year or senior college). It has raised and
invested more money in equipment than any of our other institutions
and has gotten together a larger and more scholarly
faculty. It received more recognition in the educational organization
of the state than any other junior college in the state. It
proposes to maintain the same high standards as a college of the
first class that it has maintained as a junior college and to build
a plant worthy of the great work being done. It is not an experiment.
It is an established institution. Under the same management,
under very adverse conditions, and with much opposition,
it has steadily grown and developed along all lines until it
is now completely organized and is finishing successfully its
second year's work as a college of the first class.
CERTIFICATES AND DEGREES.
Students who finish four years of college work in a satisfactory
manner receive the B. A. Degree. The permanent state
certificate which is valid for life in any part of the state, will be
conferred by the State Department of Education, upon the student
who has satisfied the requirements for the Bachelor of Arts
Degree and who has taken as many as seven and two-fifth courses
in the Department of Education of the college.
Our pride is not in our plant, the size and strength of our
faculty, or the standing of our institution in the educational
world, but in our product-our students. The business and professional
men of Abilene, the people where they go for athletic and
other contests , our visitors, and others tell us they are "different,"
more refined and cultured, that they are clean and honest. Our
purpose is to develop CHRISTIAN men and women, real, genuine
CHRISTIAN men and women, CHRISTIAN not in doctrine and
faith only, but CHRISTIAN in character, in life.
Under proper restraint, the association of boys and girls,
young men and young women, is most helpful and valuable. It
develops the finer graces in social life and gives ease, dignity,
confidence and naturalness. Each exercises a restraining, refining,
and ennobling influence over the other. They are not permitted
to board in the same houses, and social intercourse is
permitted only on occasions provided for that purpose. The
